Weekly Why: Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola and the Trend of Midseason Appointments | Bleacher Report

Pep Guardiola seems to like mid-season appointments. It didn’t affect Bayern Munich last time and doesn’t seem to be doing so this time, probably because his departure was expected. It definitely seems to be affecting Manchester City, though. What I don’t get is why the announcement has to be made during the season in his case. Could Bayern and Manchester City not wait until near the end of the season, or the summer, to make the announcement? I guess all the media speculation doesn’t help but then they start speculating on the future even more after the announcement.

I agree with the author that such an announcement makes sense with Chelsea due to the interim manager situation. Otherwise it’s hard to fathom how such early announcements are helpfully. We’ll see if it’s a trend that continues.
